In Reply to: Acrylic cage users... posted by Clownfishie on January 13, 2003 at 15:19:01:
Unless your using pure (i.e. RO water) your going to have mineral buildup over time. It can be kept to a minimum if you clean the enclosure regularly. As for acrylic vs. glass... my preference is glass 100%! It's easier to work with, doesn't warp or scratch like acrylic. It is also more stable and tolerant of the various cleaners that you might use to eliminate the buildup your concerned about. Hope that helps.
:Do any of you have a problem with calcium buildup on the walls of the enclosure due to misting etc? And if so, how do you deal with it?
:I'm looking into having a cage built, and 2 of the options are either to use glass, or acrylic. The person who would be building the glass enclosure pointed out that with the high humidity in the cage, there would likely be a build-up of calcium on the walls, and that it might be difficult to get off with an acrylic cage, whereas with a glass cage it could be scraped off with a razor.
:Thanks for any input you can give :)
